Does anyone else NOT have a themed baby’s / child’s room?
When I was pregnant with my first, I certainly did want the beautiful themed baby’s room. The gorgeous back and whites or greys and yellows … you know what I mean. Like this:
I wanted it so badly. But we just didn’t have the money. In fact, a lot of our baby’s room had stuff that was either given to us, or was second hand. It still is! My boy has the bed my husband slept in as a child, and all the drawers in our kids rooms are from when we grew up ourselves.
Even now, I look at my kids’ room and think “Oh man this is a mess”. No cohesion, no coordination. Curtains that are broken. There’s a cot mattress in my boys room sitting against a wall …
Now, one of the reasons it’s a mess is because our house is a 1970’s style house and has ZERO storage space. Even the garage is tiny, and is full of our stuff. So our kids bedrooms are basically an extra storage area …
Below are two pictures – my boy’s room is first, followed by my girls. Our house is a tiny house, so the bedrooms are the same. They don’t fit much in them.
I realise that overall a beautifully set up room is for the parents, and not for the child. Because ultimately the child / baby doesn’t really care. But I still wanted it haha
If money wasn’t an issue (and I wasn’t lazy) then I would definitely make my kids’ rooms look absolutely amazing. Who doesn’t want to have a gorgeous looking room!?
Did you guys have a beautifully set up baby’s room? Or have a beautiful kid’s room? Let me know and share a photo with me! I LOVE being inspired. And if you don’t – then you’re just like me – aspiring to be beautiful haha
